Minolta DiMAGE X20 Digital Camera Review
30 September 2003
Excerpt: Minolta has released another addition in the DiMAGE series producing the X20 model. Claimed to be the fastest loading digital camera with an optical zoom, this new digital camera has many similarities to the higher end Xt model. Sporting most of the Xt's features, including the movie recording option (limited only by the memory card size) through to the body design.
Excerpt: The Minolta
DiMAGE X20 is a lower cost, lower resolution version of
their popular DiMAGE Xt model (see
our review). While the Xt is 3.2 Megapixel, has an optical
viewfinder, and uses a proprietary battery, the X20 is 2 Megapixel,
lacks an optical viewfinder, and uses AA batteries. It also
costs just $250 -- half of the (list) price of the Xt.
Pros: Generally good photo quality, Ultra-thin body with 3X zoom lens, Fast startup, shot-to-shot, playback speeds, Movie mode can record until card is full, with sound, Mirror for self-portraits on front of camera. Interesting? Yes. Useful? Not sure., Uses AA batteries instead of proprietary lithium-ion, Can be used for videoconferencing (Windows only)
Cons: Some vignetting, fuzzy corners in images; images on the soft side, No manual controls, No optical viewfinder, Some redeye and purple fringing, I'm not a huge fan of the four-way controller and the new menu system, No AF illuminator, So-so bundle

Excerpt: Appareil numérique bimégapixel, Le Dimage X20 vient s’ajouter là la série Dimage X. Il lui manque les finitions soignées et certaines fonctions de ses aînés. Mais il conserve de ces derniers plusieurs atouts, dont un zoom optique 3x et une sensibilité à la lumière réglable. Avec ses dimensions de 8,6x6,6x2,3 cm, le X20 est remarquablement fin. Léger, il ne pèse que 173 grammes avec la batteries et les accessoires.
